Fake Steve Jobs blogger unmasked
The anonymous writer of a prominent blog which lampoons Apple boss Steve Jobs has been unmasked. The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs, in which the writer pretended to be the Apple chief executive, has become a must-read for technology watchers.
After months of speculation, the New York Times reported that the writer was Daniel Lyons, a senior editor at business magazine Forbes. The blog will apparently be published on the Forbes website. See Forbes story. New York Times revealed this information thus. This revelation on the NYT tech blog drew angry responses from readers who claimed that, by revealing the identity of the blogger, the NYT had removed the mystery element thereby ruining it for many readers who enjoyed the fake Steve blog.
